The Importance of Respite Care for Caregivers of Dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease Loved Ones

The Importance of Respite Care for Caregivers of Dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease Loved Ones

greatgramauntcharOver and over I hear from caregivers that they do not feel they have the support or respite care they need to help take care of themselves.

Caregivers need to take time for themselves. Even if it’s just to grab lunch with an old friend, go to an exercise class or stroll through the book store.

ElderCare at Home’s Reach out for Respite program was designed specially with those needs in mind. Our companions and home health aides are trained specifically to care for and spend time with memory impaired patients.

Caregivers can trust our staff to provide appropriate care with dignity, compassion and expertise. Best of all, it’s affordable! Some of our respite services include:

  • Light Housekeeping, Laundry, Dusting
  • Friendship & Companionship
  • Hourly or Live-In Care
